Is This Jennifer Aniston’s Way of Forgiving Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt?
In the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, in which Aniston covers, the former Friends star opens up about forgiveness. Telling the publication that she tends not to hold any grudges against people in her life anymore, the actress says that she considers herself as “a forgiving person” these days.
“I absolutely am. I think it’s extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste,” she says. “There’s nothing worse than holding a grudge. Listen, people can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, ‘Look, we’re all human beings. We make mistakes.’ To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.”
Since Aniston’s 2005 split with Brad Pitt, who married Jolie earlier this year, the two actresses have been featured in numerous tabloids allegedly feuding and competing against one another in their movie careers and love lives.
Though Aniston has yet to wed her fiancé, the 45-year-old says she’s happier than ever with “sweetheart” Justin Theroux.
“Not only is he a great actor but he’s one of the best comedy writers out there. And he directs and paints murals. I just think it’s so attractive to be that good at so many things and to have no ego,” she gushes. “He’s one of the most humble, decent human beings. He’s not an ass. He’s not like some of our friends who are young and up-and-coming and they hit celebrity, and all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Oh! You’re different. Now you don’t say hi to people?'”
Wanderlust. Since then, the couple, who’ve been dating for three years, got engaged in August 2012.
She adds of her beau and how he’s been handling their very public romance, “He’s just been doing it so graciously and gracefully, and it’s a strange ballpark to walk into. He’s in his body, for sure. He’s a pretty realized person.”
“It’s almost impossible to get bored with one another,” she continues. “We’ve tried so hard! And even that’s interesting because his eyes are so pretty, but we can entertain ourselves and talk about endless things, which is pretty great.”
